4:01pm
new on their prosthetics or in a wheelchair even, that's a long distance to go. >> shepard: after fox news got on the case, word that walter reed is fixing the problem. tonight, the plan to avoid insult to injury. plus, bit coin is is a digital currency that can replace cash. but because it's unregulated and nearly untraceable, people can use it to buy drugs or guns or anything illegal. now, an investigation into the threat of virtual money. >> shepard: but there is breaking news just in. we had no idea this was about to happen. we are told moments from now we will hear from the 16-year-old girl who survived a kidnapping that took her from southern california to idaho. remember, a family friend is said to have killed a mother and son and kidnapped the 16-year-old daughter hannah anderson. the murder and kidnapper shot dead by police. hannah anderson, we are told. will take to the microphone
4:02pm
any moment to tell the story of her harrowing ordeal. we'll bring it to you live when it happens. first from fox this thursday night a crucial american ally is in turmoil and spiraling out of control. egyptian say more than 600 people are dead in the latest fighting there. and now we know the muslim brotherhood is planning a mass finale tomorrow mass challenge against its government. this was the scene a short while ago. fires on the road. earlier the government officially gave police the go ahead to use deadly force against protesters. these protesters have been burning christian churches and government buildings. and attacking security forces. tonight, all evidence shows this is getting worse, not better. and as fox reports tonight, we cannot know how bad it will get. but, much may destabilize the entire region.
4:03pm
[gunfireself] >> shepard: this all began in earnest yesterday when riot police were cracking down on protesters, mohammed morsi the muslim brotherhood elected president last year. crackdown. the military staged a coup and booted him from office. within the last day, pro-morsey forces have set fire to churches across the country. dozens of them reportedly. egyptian state tv blames his supporters tore torching two government building across the nile from cairo. on the road that leads to the egyptian pyramids. egypt's second largest city alexandria thousands protesters marched through a mosque chanting support for morsey and the muslim brotherhood. back in cairo hundreds of
4:04pm
brotherhood members protested outside a mosque. while inside families tried to identify loved ones among the twisted limbs and blood-soaked bodies of the dead. more than 200 bodies there alone. the reality is we have no idea tonight how many corpses lie in egypt streets. how many more may join them before this end. there is no doubt all americans have a vested interest in how this develops. egypt is our most important arab ally. it's also right next door to israel and if egypt falls into civil war, it could effect the decades old peace treatedy with israel. earlier today the white house released a photo of president obama on the phone with his national --urity team disgusting discussing the crisis in egypt. he is condemning the fighting. >> let me say that the egyptian people deserve better than what we he have seen over the last several days. the egyptian people let me
4:05pm
say the cycle of violence and escalation needs to stop. >> shepard: but again, the president refrained from calling the situation in egypt a coup that's the reason for what it is. if they use the label officially that would force the united states to cancel a bill nafdz in aide that we give the egyptian military each year. that money is our leverage over all of this. the state department said that only washington is continuing to review the aid to egypt. tonight, protesters and police are still killing each other in the streets. wendell goler is live from martha's vineyard tonight. >> shep, the president says both sides in the egyptian conflict have accused the u.s. of supporting the other. he says ultimately the egyptians are going to have to resolve the dispute on their own. >> we want egypt to succeed. we want a peaceful, democratic, prosperous egypt. that's our interest. but, to achieve that, the
4:06pm
egyptians are going to have to do the work. >> but kentucky senator rand paul, no friend of the muslim brotherhood criticized mr. obama's refusal to cut off aid to the egyptian military. paul said, quote: the law is very clear when a could you takes place coup must stop regardless of the the white house says he didn't govern democratically. some people fine with morsi's ouster question the wisdom of canceling the military exercise. >> i would say chris size them publicly. privately get a real pulls for what's going on in egypt today and see if we can't influence events. >> by any main stay of u.s. egyptian relations since 19 1. it hasn't been held since 2009 because of egypt's political instability. shepard?
4:07pm
>> wendell goler in massachusetts tonight. attacking some of our nuclear plants could be a peace of cake for the terrorists. that's according to a brand new report, commissioned by the pentagon. in a 32 page paper, experts at the nuclear proliferation prevention project last our federal government for not imposing better security standards. they say we are not prepared for multiple scenarios. everything from an attack on 00 scale of 9/11 to a nuclear meltdown like the one at fukushima in japan. one of the report's authors concludes these nuclear reactors are naked. doug mckelway with the rest of story tonight from d.c. doug? >> and, shep, this report flies in the face of what the nuclear industry says about its own security since 9/11. this industry handout tape shows typical kind of security, nuke have outer security ring controlled and inner security ring marked by double fencing topped with raiser. third layer vital equipment used to shut down react
4:08pm
torres. then the containment vessel itself. >> the plant is also physically protected with multiple players of steel and concrete. this approach of layered backup systems is tim call of sophisticated nuclear plant engineering, design and operations. >> that industry perspective stands in stark contrast to what university of texas researchers found. >> u.s., civilian nuclear power plant are not protected against attacks from the air. they are not protected against attacks from the sea. they are not protected against rocket-propelled grenades. they are not protected against 50 caliber sniper rifles using armored piercing ammunition. which those are are the greatest threat. >> the industry says its tests show containment vessels can sustain a direct impact from a boeing 767. that contradicts findings by the u.s. national laboratory which found it would breech the containment vessel. so, shep, it boils down to
4:09pm
who do you trust? >> doug mckelway live in washington. the u.s. military now announcing new steps to crackdown on sexual assaults within its ranks. the pentagon now reports it will allow commanders to transfer troops who ho are suspected of sex crimes to cut down on contact with their victims. this will also create a new program to provide legal representation to the victims and allow victims to have a say during the sentencing phase of a court martial. recent report suggested the number of sexual assaults in our military may have increased by more than one third last year alone. a teenage beauty pageant winner says somebody hacked her bedroom web cam to take photos of her. and now fox news confirms the fbi is investigating. the pageant windsor cassidy wolf. she is from california and over the weekend she became the new miss teen u.s.a. and she says several months ago somebody contacted her claiming to have hacked into her computer to take those web cam photos. the blackmailer threatened
4:10pm
to release them, she said, unless she paid up. julie bane darr was with this. julie. >> according to the fbi, shep, apparently received these anonymous emails from someone claiming to have nude photos of her. agents have identified, we have been told, more than a dozen victims and cassidy wolf's case and know the alleged source of activity. they are not commenting further due to the ongoing investigation. now, the beauty queen appeared on "fox & friends" this week and she offered some advice to teens, listen. >> i had the same password forever, for years. so now seeing that someone can easily hack into my stuff by downloading an incorrect link. it's very important to change your pass words, cleat your cookers. never know when someone could be watching. >> so wolf is now using her experience to campaign against cyber crime and raise awareness during her reign miss teen u.s.a. >> the latest hacker
4:11pm
invading personal space. attacking somebody at home. a hacker who used a baby monitor to spy on a little girl in her bedroom and call her bad names. forbes.com reports earlier this year researchers discovered a flaw in that camera's security setup and the company has since released an update to fix it. stocks tanked on wall street today. ahead, what drove them down and why there was also a bit of good news. plus, the virtual currency that people can use to launder money, buy drugs, carry out all sorts of illegal and legal transactions. it's been around for years. you have heard of it? bit coin. it and other forms of digital money are now attracting a whole lot of attention. seems the irs wants in. we will have the investigation ahead. plus, a live look now on idaho where we are waiting to it hear -- this is san diego, actually. i believe it's idaho, isn't it? my bad, it's san diego. this is the spot where 16-year-old hannah anderson, we're told, is about to come to the
4:12pm
microphones and tell of her ordeal. kidnapped by a family family friend. a family friend who murdered her mother and little brother and now we will hear for the very first time what that week was like and the rest of the news from the journalists of fox news on this thursday fox report. are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we give you a range of options to choose from. careful, though -- that kind of power can go to your head. that explains a lot. yo, buddy! i got this. gimme one, gimme one, gimme one! the power of the "name your price" tool only from progressive. cheryl burke is cha-cha-ing in depend silhouette briefs for charity, to prove that with soft fabric and waistband, the best protection looks, fits, and feels just like underwear.

4:16pm
coin. they report criminals are using the form of money for drug smuggling drug running and child pornography. not new information but a new report. tech experts say virtual currencies have grown in popularity in recent years. more folks use them for untraceable, online transactions. >> you can convert your real money to this virtual money. and i think people probably need to remember because i kept thinking about well, what backs it? you know, it's just virtual money. well, what backs real money? just a belief that it has some value. and what's happening very quickly with bit coins is that people are beginning to believe it has value. now we have even a bar that's going to accept bit coins. i think that's probably the benchmark. once you could buy alcohol with money it's real. >> shepard: investigators in new york have subpoenaed almost two dozen companies including one which cammeron and tyler own. the investors claim they came up with the idea for facebook. the u.s. senate committee is now looking into the
4:17pm
currency as well. peter barnes is investigating for us live tonight in d.c. peter? >> well, shep, as virtual currencies like bit coin become more popular. officials want to make sure that users are protected. it's largely unregulated technology designed to help reduce the cost of buying and selling products by eliminating the middle man. in this case, banks which charge processing fees for transactions. the system is based on trust between buyers and sellers and supposedly secure but many cyber currencies are also backed by exchanges that can convert these bit coins and other things into cash. right now about $98 for one bit coin, for example, but with more than a billion dollars in bit coins floating around cyberspace right now, policy makers are starting to consider regulating them to prevent scams, losses and money. new york's top bank regulator says, quote: if virtual currencies remain a virtual wild west for
4:18pm
narcotraffickers and other criminals, that would not only threaten our country's national security but also the very existence of the virtual currency industry as a legitimate business enterprise. shep? >> shepard: peter, the senate homeland security and government affairs committee has sent letters to seven government agencies asking those agencies whether officials there are concerned about virtual concern sis and how they might be able to regulate them. we are told the committee may hold some hearings on this issue. michael jackson's ex-wife broke down on the stand today. describing the late pop star's constant pain and his history of controversial doctors. we'll have the latest as jackson concert promoters fight back in a billion-dollar lawsuit. plus, scientists have discovered a new species of animals. and there it is. it's been right under our noses for at least a year and nobody realized this guy is brand new to humans. we'll bring that you story. plus we are are still waiting for hannah

the mother is catherine jackson. she claims aeg live failed to properly investigate this doctor conrad murray. you will remember a jury convicted him of giving her son a deadly overdose of the powerful sedative propofol in 2009. aeg live denies it did anything wrong and claims it was jackson himself who hired dr. murray, trace gallagher with the news in los angeles. debbie roe contradicted herself on the stand too. >> yeah, because after saying that michael jackson was never doctor shopping she went on to testify, shep that she was concerned at one time that he might have been looking for drugs and not treatment she then family size they'd was in constant pain from burns that he suffered when his hair caught fire during the philemoning of pepsi commercial in 1984, from his skin lightning disease as well. she testified, quote: when it came to the pain it was more begging for relief than anything. he respected doctors so he wouldn't question what they were doing. roe was called by aeg she
